grand john thanks
I'd really like a set i.e a list of tunes and preferably the dots which I can put together to give to the other musicians.
Cheers
Ged

you get asked for 'A wee deoch and doris', Andy Stewart stuff, I belong to glasgow, the wild rover, Burns stuff - red red rose, rose of allendale, dougie Maclean's Caledonia.

Its a while since I did one. i remember being asked for deoch and doris and I didn't know it, and people were disappointed about that. But really its a pretty good natured gig - you should be all right.

Are they dancing?
If so a good set might be

Gay Gordons (Scotland the Brave, Cock O' the North)
The Dhoon (reels 32 bar eg My Love she's but a lassie yet)
Dashing White Sergeant (own tune)
Canadian Barn Dance (Polka eg Marie's Wedding)
La Russe (own tune)
Eightsome Reel ( reels 32 Bar - beware though it starts with 40 bars and ends with 40 bars)
The Haymakers ( 48bar jig eg Monahan, Merrily Kissed the Quaker)
Strip the Willow ( slip jig eg Foxhunters, Roger de Coverley)
Auld Lang Syne

Repeat dances ad nauseum or put in a few nice Burns songs or Scottish waltzes eg Banks and braes

Hope this helps

Cheers

Sarah

I think I would add to that list the proclaimers stuff, if I had to do it nowadays.
